Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Draft at Commercial Taphouse. Poured an almost clear golden yellow orange. Big nose of citic hop. Slight biscuit malt backbone followed by a shot of grapefruit and pineapple citrus, balancing bitterness. Really we’ll done, teetering into IPA territory.

Aluminum can: Aroma is fragrant with the smell of freshly squeezed grapefruit and blood orange fruit which sparked interest. Liquid appeared a murky gold that had an eruption of bubbles rising to the top. A brief formation of foam head but quickly fizzed out. Looks similar to champagne. The flavor is initially bitter with intense moments of sourness across my tongue. Finish reminds me of some strong type of cheese as the beer leaves behind a salty residue around my lips. Not a beer that I am entirely thrilled about spending over $13 for a 6 pack.

Bottle from Stone in Asagaya. Pours a clear gold with a nice white soapy head that lingers for a bit. Awesome nose with lots of citrus: lemon, orange and grapefruit with some light pine and cracker. Very active carbonation with a crisp and dry, bitter finish. Awesome.

Poured into a shaker glass. Light to medium amber with a foamy cream colored head. Great aroma with some bread and caramel as well as a lot of citrusy hops. Flavor doesn’t have a lot of detectable malt character but has a nice dose of hops with equal parts earthy and citrusy notes. Medium bodied with nice carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall really nice for a pale ale and better than a lot of average IPA’s I’ve had.

commonmac (1061) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle consumed at Jackpot Junction for the family reunion. Pint glass. Attractive golden orange color with some slight cloudy tendency. Minor white head. Nice pine aroma with a pleasant tropical fruit characteristic. Taste is well balanced with a malty backbone and some high quality tropical fruit elements. Bitterness is present but not overwhelming. Enjoyable. Definitely feels like one to add to the stable of go-to options. Just a notch below the Racer 5.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2016
Racing-themed APA by Bear Republic, with very frothy, snow white, thick moussy head leaving an irregularly shaped rim of thick papery lacing around the glass, crowning a lightly hazy ’old gold’ coloured beer with light orangey hue, turning a deeper shade of orange and equally cloudy with sediment. Delicate and fragrant aroma of blood orange flesh, mandarin peel, spruce shoots, biscuit, candied lemon, green banana, fresh apple cake, wormwood, sweet paprika powder, pine-scented soap, yellow kiwi, hemp, burnt chicken skin, freshly grated ginger root, cigarette tobacco. Lively but clean fruity onset, hints of green banana, kiwi and starfruit, mildly sourish and subduedly sweetish, medium carbo just fit for the style, supple and lightly oily and somewhat soapy mouthfeel, medium bodied. Pleasant cereally malt middle with a caramelly edge to it, supporting the vivid, beautifully restrained fruitiness and building the perfect bridge to a hoppy finish, providing adequate, quenching, resinous and spicy but by no means harsh bitterness as well as a wealth of retronasal dank, piney and citrusy aromas. This must be among the finest APAs I ever had, I can easily see how it scores so high on this site; it has a stunningly beautiful balance between sweetish malts and fruit on the one hand and spicy, oily, bittering and delicately aromatic hops on the other hand but the latter remain sufficiently in place to remain APA instead of falling into IPA domain. Very refined and refreshing, absolutely adorable - I would recommend this example to anyone who is interested in getting to know the ’old’ American pale ale style.
